When you look at the sun, is their a moment when you cant see at all?
Question Date: 2015-08-05
Answer 1:

Good grief! DON'T LOOK AT THE SUN! It will injure your eyes. Even when the sun is behind the moon, during an eclipse, you need to use special eclipse glasses that are very dark to look at even the little bit of sun that shines around the moon.

Best wishes,

Answer 2:

The sun is so bright that if you look at it for too long, it will burn your eyes and you be forever blind!
